We asked what is the best hair straightener? Here are your top 3 choices:
Chi is definitely the best. It doesn’t damage your hair, it’s good enough to use everyday without worrying about breakage or split ends, it works on thick, frizzy, wavy/curly hair, and it keeps your hair shiny and soft and not frizzy!
I love it.” (- x__EMuhLEE@xanga)
This iron can create gorgeous straight locks and waves thanks to the rounder barrels. It also has ceramic heaters and aluminum plates which are less damaging on your hair. It also has a safety feature that turns it off when left unused for 30 minutes.
They are amazing, heat up in like 6 seconds, and they straighten your hair so well first time round. They’re really expensive though – more expensive than the Chi. But it’s so worth it. (- vvaanneessuuhh@xanga)
It heats up really quickly, straightens my hair quickly and keeps it straight. (- teen_assassin@xanga)
This iron is advisable for stubborn curly or coarse hair. It has wider plates which makes it the ideal tool for thicker hair. This technology also benefits unruly hair because thicker sections can be ironed.
The newest one by bio ionic is really nice. It contains Natural Ion Complex (a blend of naturally-occurring minerals) that emits Natural Negative Ions in to the hair. Natural Negative Ion energy is powerful enough to break down clusters of water molecules into fine particles that penetrate the hair shaft, to rehydrate, recondition and restore moisture balance. It also heats up in 2 seconds! (- cYniCaL31@xanga)
Flat irons are a wonderful hair-styling tool that assist in creating a straight hair style. Some flat irons can also be used for curling your hair (see photos demonstrating the technique here). I will recommend two excellent flat irons that I believe perform the task with amazing quality.
First of all, there are certain qualities to consider before selecting a flat iron. Your hair type plays a role in your flat iron needs. You may have straight hair with a few kinks, smooth wavy hair, frizzy curls, etc.
If you hair is not too curly and you would not need to straighten your hair all of the time, you may want to try the affordable but highly effective Remington Wet 2 Straight flat iron.
However, if your hair is curlier in nature and you would straighten your hair more often, you should seriously contemplate investing in a more expensive flat iron such as the Sedu flat iron. Your hair type and how frequently you intend to straighten your hair should be reflected when you contemplate purchasing a flat iron.
Saving up for a flat iron is always worth the effort for the superior level of quality.
It is important to look for a flat iron with adjustable heat settings. The width of the flat iron plate should also be taken into consideration. A smaller plate will take a greater amount of time when straightening your hair. However, the smaller panels are best for those who wish to use their flat iron for both straightening and curling purposes. Also, try to purchase a flat iron with ceramic plates.
When using a flat iron or any heated hair-styling tool, you should always use a product to protect your hair from the heat. I personally recommend TRESemme Thermal Creations Heat Tamer Spray.
Also, if you have curlier hair and intend to straighten your hair very often, consider purchasing Nexxus Sleek Memory Straightening Spray. It is important to maintain healthy hair in order to achieve beautiful straight hair.
